Our 7th annual Team Brean awards took place at Tavern, Brean Leisure Park to say thank you and reward our team for a job well done during 2023.
The team awards are designed to reward achievement across the year and recognise efforts in all areas and at all levels within the business.
Over 170 team members attended the evening across all areas of the business.
Long service awards were given our first for team members achieving milestones in 5-year blocks.
Our long-service team members are a mixture of people who have progressed through the ranks since joining #teambrean. A testament of there being great career opportunities and stable employment within the leisure industry.
